MusicCast is a revolution in network audio. Use all your MusicCast products together or separately — it’s completely up to you. Control it all from one app, intuitively, quickly, and easily.

What’s more, Amazon Alexa with MusicCast gives you the ability to control all MusicCast devices with simple voice commands.

Amazon Alexa with MusicCast

Amazon Alexa-enabled devices can now control key functions of any MusicCast product using voice commands. Using two types of Alexa skills, the MusicCast Smart Home skill and MusicCast skill, you can play music, control volume, play playlists, and even link rooms together to play music all throughout the house. Discover a new, exciting way to control music and entertainment experiences in your home.

Great system!
This is a great system for those who want to get into the world of higher quality audio equipment and need to recognize that they have a budget. I previously owned Carver components paired with Bose speakers The keyword here is "previously". I had them for 22 years. So I was thrilled to update with a system that has all the modern tech features sought after in this day and time. This system proves you don't have to go broke to obtain high-quality sound and stellar reliability. I classify this system as great!! Highly recommended!
